The double edged drone

The latest ORG International Security Monthly Briefing , "A hint of victory?", from Professor Paul Rogers, (Professor of Peace Studies at the University of Bradford), raises the all too often forgotten or ignored lessons of guerrilla warfare history. It ranges much wider than that, but also closes in on a particular detail of modern military asymmetry:
